Brilliant Corners

Moving on Music's Belfast jazz festival expands to seven days, and the big screen, for its third year in business

Festival Details


Saturday, 05 March 2016 to Saturday, 12 March 2016



Brilliant Corners is back with another incredible line-up featuring some of the most varied, exciting, and interesting music around.

This year the festival is paying homage to jazz legend Ornette Coleman, redefining piano trios with Vein Trio, bringing Latin rhythms to the Belfast Barge, adding a touch of NYC to synth-soaked free jazz with OKO and Tim Berne, going classic with Tommy Smith and Brian Kellock, and finishing with two of the most exciting bands in on these islands; Dinosaur and Alarmist.

The programme will also feature performances from brand new ensembles assembled by artist-in-residence David Lyttle as well as screenings at the BeanBag Cinema, organised for the first time with the Belfast Film Festival.

If you have been before, you’ll know what to expect: amazing, surprising, life-changing music. If you haven’t, we hope you’ll come along and experience Belfast’s only jazz festival in all its bijou glory!
